Earlier today I found myself shooting and editing a “weekly update” video for YouTube, but I’ve nipped that idea in the bud already. Tying together all my works-in-progress in one update is difficult enough, but close to pointless given that those updates would only be seen by that one specific platform’s audience. I would much rather keep projects quiet

Oof, it’s been so long since an update I don’t know where to start, so I’m going to stoop a little low and catch upwith you in the form of a list. The Wrong Ghost is in the third stage of editing, I have a few key chapters to write and rewrite because I want to change a key narrative element, but the plan is to have the book as-good-as finished in time

As expected, not having the spectre of the 2nd draft of The Wrong Ghost hanging over my head has freed me up to do a few things. I’ve polished up code on both this website and Crap Looking Books, found the time to put out consistent and regular vlogs, ran the Manchester 10k on the hottest day of this year so far, and finally started writing articles and

So I finally finished the second full draft of “Jamie Grace Has The Wrong Ghost” this evening! I’m sure this was meant to be complete in January, but what can you do? I already have an 11 page document of notes for the third draft, including a fairly substantial subplot change, but before I get on with that I’d like to focus down on as many other little

So I’m in a bit of a middle zone. I’m at the end of the second draft of Jamie Grace Has The Wrong Ghost, and already thinking about the work involved in the third draft, I’m halfway between winter and summer (as are the rest of us), and I’m fresh out of a calendar of events (London Book Fair, The Getting Published Event) and already bearing down on another

After much preparation I think/hope I am finally ready for London Book Fair 2014! I have promotional material for both this page and Crap Looking Books, every pitch and detail of Jamie Grace Has The Wrong Ghost and The Christmas Santa Slept consigned to memory, a list of key exhibitors and seminars, but most importantly.. an insatiable enthusiasm and

Well I’ve spent the better part of this week unlocking all the articles and reviews that used to populate NickSheridan.com but went vanishing with the September domain transfer. Really no excuse for not having done this much sooner! The busiest week of the year approaches with London Book Fair, and all I have left to do before then is ready my best foot

Phew! What a start to the year. My resolution to focus down and get the second draft of Jamie Grace Has The Wrong Ghost utterly finished in time for The Writer’s Workshop Getting Published Day was certainly kept; I feel like I haven’t worked on anything else, or spent time with anyone else but the characters within. Unfortunately I didn’t hit completion,

So 2013 closes on a fairly positive note. The handful of videos I’ve put out this month have done much better than I expected, which has made me move a few similar videos further up my “to shoot” list. A spring of various literary and writing events awaits, and my health is finally back on track and helping rather than hindering. There are some who
